Copyright Guidance

The Wheaton College Copyright Guide covers such topics as

  • which works are copyrighted and which are not
  • whether you can use copyrighted works in the classroom, in Schoology, or on personal web pages
  • the meaning of Fair Use
  • how to get copyright permission when necessary
  • how to manage the copyright of your own publications or creative works
  • requesting film showing and copyright permission

An accessible version of the copyright guide is also available.
